Editorial: 'It Ends Here' a well-rounded and important MSA campaign

Just last week, the Minnesota Student Association launched a wide-spread campaign aiming to combat sexual assault on campus. This movement is what this campus needs. The “It Ends Here” campaign attempts to tackle many facets of sexual misconduct by attempting to curb culture, conversation and policy on the University of Minnesota campus.

Ailts: Widespread hunger across college campuses calls for institutional relief

Food insecurity, or the lack of reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable, nutritious food, is a more pervasive problem on college campuses than some may realize. It’s been considered a bigger problem at two-year colleges and state universities, but new data suggests that 20-33 percent of students at four-year colleges are also food insecure. On average, around 12 percent of U.S. households experience food insecurity.

Letter: SJP event on Palestine history unhelpful and misleading

What is the best way to promote peace in the Middle East? Though the answer is not clear, it is certainly not spewing incorrect and anti-Semitic rhetoric to students on campus.

I was wrong.
